New research to study RNA just about to start

October 10, 2012

The group led by Giovanni Bussi at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste has just received considerable financing to study RNA, a molecule with several functions, important in the biology of the cell. In the project, the method of computer simulations will be used.

Scientists inspired by a microscopic water organism

October 9, 2012 

Until now it has been a mystery to scientists: how does it work? What is the need of the movement of euglenids, small organisms swimming in any pond? Nobody has ever described it in detail and nobody has ever understood its dynamics. But today, through a mathematical model, scientists at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) and at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya have suggested a plausible description of this movement, made by the sliding of the membrane around the outer surface of euglenids.

I Master in Comunicazione della Scienza e in Giornalismo Scientifico Digitale

Manca poco al termine per l'iscrizione al Master biennale in Comunicazione della Scienza e per il Master annuale in Giornalismo Scientifico Digitale organizzati dalla SISSA (Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati).

Quest'anno, infatti, la scadenza per la presentazione delle domande è il 26 settembre (entro le 12.00), per entrambi i corsi. Ma non è l'unica novità, anzi:

In Trieste the second most powerful computer centre in Italy

July 13, 2012

It will be one of the most advanced computer centres in Italy, the second most powerful, with 130 TeraFlops (one TeraFlops equals one thousand billion calculations per second), and a storing capacity of around 200 TeraBytes, totally 32 million hour calculations per year.

Summer School on Dopaminergic Neurons

July 18-19, 2012

During the Summer School on Dopaminergic Neurons, organised by SISSA and CBM, the most innovative approaches to treat Parkinson's disease will be handled. Internationally known speakers and several researchers will be participating. Within the activity of the school, the results of Dopaminet, a European project involving SISSA and CBM, will be illustrated.

A school for research on Parkinson’s disease

July 23, 2012

The Summer School on Dopaminergic Neurons, held at SISSA some days ago, has ended successfully. Several speeches were held on cutting-edge research on Parkinson's disease, one of the most common neurological disorders in our society.

Neuroscience experts gather in workshop

18th and 19th September, 2012 
SISSA - Main Lecture Hall 

On 18th and 19th September in Trieste a workshop was held by some of the most important cognitive neuroscientists. After granting an honorary PhD to the famous scientist Noam Chomsky, over the next two days SISSA summed up what is at the forefront of cognitive science.

Who is a science journalist?

September 7, 2012

SISSA is once again a reference point in the Italian scenery of science communication and journalism: an article entitled "Il racconto pubblico della scienza" (the public dissemination of science) by Nico Pitrelli, co-director of SISSA Master's in Science Communication and of SISSA Master's in Digital Science Journalism, has been published in the journal "Il Mulino".

Chomsky at SISSA

On September 17, the famous linguist and scholar Noam Chomsky received a PhD in Neuroscience from the hands of Guido Martinelli, the Director of the International School for Advanced studies (SISSA) in Trieste. This event was attended by a broad international audience (scientists and laypeople).
